Baxandall Tone Control


Copyright 2000 by Scott Swartz. All Rights Reserved


Below is a tone control circuit commonly known as a Baxandall type. This works great for distortion pedals, as you can roll off highs and/or lows and leave the midrange alone. The values shown on the schematic work well in my opinion, but if you want to tweak it there is a great tool on the internet called Duncan's Tone Control Simulator located at:

This simulator allows you to change the value of any of the components and see how the frequency response of the circuit is affected. Very Cool!!
